Asus’ main business has always been shilling motherboards, videocards and other PC implements so it kind of makes sense that the Taiwanese manufacturer has chosen to move on to selling a wholly branded PC built with their parts. That’s what their Essentio CM Series desktop bring essentially, is – a collection of Asus branded products that’s crammed into a nice, pre-built PC that aimed at casual PC users who don’t have the time or the expertise to build their own rig. The Essentio CM sports a second generation Intel Core i3 2100 on a H61 Express chipset, 2 GB of DDR3 memory, 500GB SATAIII, optical disk drive, 20-inch LED monitor and topped off with Windows 7 Home Basic. If you’re in the mood for something with a bit more oomph, there’s a Core i5 2300 model available. If you do suddenly find the urge to upgrade the Essentio, keep in mind that you run the risk of voiding the 1-year warranty that Asus is offering with the device, basically messing with the essential parts voids it, but adding simple stuff like videocards and whatnot won’t be a problem. The i3 variant will retail for Php 31,095 while the i5 variant will carry a Php 32,995 sticker.
